A great place for light lunches and gourmet coffees. We make the best sandwiches in town!

Quote from Emerge Magazine

Franka has often gone against the odds right from school at Saint Mary’s Secondary School in Accra. In her book, ‘Still Passionate About Coffee’, she wrote to celebrate the tenth anniversary of her business; this is how she acknowledged her teachers at the school: “I acknowledge […] Teachers at St Mary’s who said I wouldn’t make it.”

…looking at the photographs on Cuppa Cappuccino’s innovatively designed menu, I am pleasantly surprised to see that the pictures are taken in-house and that the tasteful presentation of the food captured within is a true depiction of what is served. The cafe, tucked away on a side road in the Airport Residential Area is well known for its gourmet coffees and delicious sandwiches. With a terrace shaded by trees, potted plants and hanging fauna, the cafe immediately welcomes you to sit, sigh and relax. The omelette is rich and moist, accompanied with toast triangles and butter. The crinkle cut fries are perfect — just enough salt, no trace of grease. The cappuccino comes in a very generous coffee cup. It isn’t much different from any other coffee I’ve had but then again, I have never been a coffee person. I do notice though that the froth is high and bold, not half-hearted as is too often the case.

I’m inspired, I want to know more. I’m thinking Franka Maria Andoh needs to write a book about her incredible business journey [thus far], to inspire the rest of us to go for it; — honestly, millions will buy her book…

Having fallen in love with their sandwiches, I have been back several times. The range of choice is overwhelming. ……….. They are simply divine. Franka, the owner is referred to on the menu as a ‘food stylist’ and I couldn’t agree more. Those rich combinations of fillings, stuffed between toasted slices and cut into the cutest triangles are the best as part of any visit to Cuppa Cappuccino.

I walk away one hot afternoon with a takeaway apple and banana smoothie, relishing not for the first time the fact that the cafe is situated in such a convenient place. I sip my smoothie as I cross the road and am stopped in my tracks as the sweet, icy mix of cream and fruit fills my mouth. “It’s like Christmas in a cup,” I hear Ryan Reynold say in The Proposal. Nothing describes my smoothie better so I’ll borrow the line. Cuppa Cappuccino is truly a delightful place, one of its kind in Accra and perfectly suited to that elusive balance between casual and professional.
